First Circuit -- DeLong v. Dickhaut (5/6)

Habeas --

Prisoner's challenge to denial of extension of time to file challenge evinced an intention to challenge the underlying action, and the collateral challenge was therefore timely..

When dismissing a petition that has both exhausted and unexhausted claims, court must make specific findings as to good cause for the non-exhausted claims.
